DEVIOUS ONES, THE: “She’s Waiting for Me” b/w “The Straggle Is Real”: 7”

Detroit’s Devious Ones is one of the best pop punk bands of today. Churning out quite a few releases over a relatively short period, this is a welcome addition to their growing discography. These two tracks are on the lighter end for Devious Ones. Both songs feature a grand 1950s sensibility that is prevalent in a majority of today’s Ramones-influenced acts, but that is rarely delivered as impeccably as it is here. It’s wonderful! –Art Ettinger (Rust On The Blade, rustontheblade.bandcamp.com)
